DAYTONA BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 -- Quture International, Inc. (OTCQB: QUTR) announced today that real-time clinical data was recently collected for approximately 800 perioperative patients at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital (UoM). Keith A. Candiotti, MD, and his physician and clinical team and information technology experts collaborated to complete the formal Clinical Trial with Quture under contract, strict protocol supervised by the Investigational Review Board (IRB) and assisted by InterSystems Corporation, Cambridge, MA.
Quture announced the satisfactory completion of the Demonstration Project at UoM for a proof of concept and statement of work for use of the InterSystems technology on September 6, 2011. This phase of the clinical trial was to demonstrate the success of the InterSystems tools of the Ensemble interface engine, Cache object-oriented database, DeepSee data display and Zen report writer as the embedded technology of its QualOptima. QualOptima is Quture's "transformative and disruptive" tool to enhance clinical performance to achieve optimal patient outcomes, with this phase of the project at UoM using a sample/test database.
Successful completion of the Clinical Trial used QualOptima with patient care to analyze the value proposition of the product to hospitals and physicians, as well as payers, regulators, suppliers and consumers of health care.
"Quture has carefully completed data collection and now analysis just in time to support marketing and sales of QualOptima under the brilliant mentoring of Dr. Candiotti and his team," said Landon Feazell, CEO of Quture International. "As we enter competition with companies whose performance and outcomes analytics experience and expertise is rooted in analyzing claims and administrative data, this Clinical Trial proves and differentiates our product collecting real-time clinical data. The University of Miami/Jackson Memorial product experience positions us in the analytics market consistent with our product and marketing strategy for the future to transform the payment and delivery systems."
The Clinical Trial and academic study was designed by Candiotti, Executive Vice-Chair & Chief Operating Officer, and Vice-Chair, Clinical Research, Department of Anesthesiology, Jackson Memorial Hospital and University of Miami Miller Medical School, and his team of experts working with Quture and InterSystems. The study connects individual patient risk factors with evidence-based perioperative performance measures compared to patient outcomes. The impact of compliance on outcomes and costs associated with extended stays and complications in recovery and beyond for well-established performance measures in anesthesia connects clinical quality with outcomes and costs. The potential of the product is being evaluated for predictive modeling and developing clinical decision support systems, as well.
Quture met with InterSystems at HIMSS in New Orleans recently on advancing QualOptima using the latest InterSystems technology and adding additional tools for Active Analytics as part of DeepSee. The combined analytics technology of QualOptima is now being applied to the clinical trial data set. Under contract with the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital, the final results will be announced by them in cooperation with Quture. Formal presentation of the results will be published by Dr. Candiotti, as well as presented at the National Healthcare Performance and Outcomes Summit in Washington, D.C., September 16-18, 2013 (http://www.performanceanalyticssummit.com). Feazell is also the Co-Chairman of the Summit, and Quture is a founding sponsor.
